This individualized approach enables our online teachers to provide the attention and resources students need to succeed. AMHS teachers can adjust lessons to provide the appropriate level of challenge or support needed. Advanced students may enroll in accelerated courses that feature increased degrees of complexity.
Our Accelerated and Enriched online programs* are available for students who qualify, starting in third grade. When appropriate, advanced coursework may be available to younger students. Advanced high school students may participate in college-preparatory curriculum, may take Honors and Advanced Placement courses, and may be able to earn college credits through dual enrollment.**
Students who require extra time, instruction, or practice can also benefit from the flexibility of virtual schooling. For students in grades 6–8 who are working below grade level in reading or math, we offer a remediation plan to help them achieve proficiency and confidence.
